Iregular – Faces
Hours and dates
- From Oct 27 to Oct 30 from 10:00 to 18:00
Founded in Montreal in 2010, digital art studio Iregular creates audiovisual installations, large-scale sculptures, architectural projections and scenographies, with a focus on interactive and immersive experiences. At the crossroads between art and technology, these artworks experiment with geometry, light, sound, typography, mathematics, algorithms, communication protocols, AI, and machine learning. Iregular also develops its own proprietary technologies.
The studio works with the infinite and random combinations produced by interactive systems that the audience ultimately influences and transforms. The interaction is at the core of it all. It is only the relationship between the people and the piece that finalizes the artwork and gives it meaning.
Iregular’s work has been shown in 25 countries, notably including a solo exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands, 5 solo exhibitions in Montreal, as well as other important presentations at Mutek (Montreal and Mexico), BIAN (Montreal), Mapping Festival (Switzerland), Chroniques Biennale (France), LEV Festival (Spain), Draaimolen (The Netherlands), Elektra (Montreal), Glow (The Netherlands), Lumiere (United Kingdom), Dubai Design Week (UAE), B39 (South Korea), Arttech (Colombia), Festival du Nouveau Cinéma (Montreal), and Aurora Festival (USA). Their creations are also in the collections of the WNDR museum in Chicago (USA), the Museo de Antioquia in Medellín (Colombia) and the Collection du Mouvement Desjardins in Montreal.
KIKK in townFaces
This first version that uses the facial tracking feature depicts the universality of humankind. Using artificial intelligence, the system accurately tracks the faces of participants standing in front of the screen. It then unifies and aligns the features of the different faces, creating an ever-changing blended portrait of a single digital human.
Today more than ever, we must remember that we are all united across borders, that we are the same despite our diverse physical appearances. We are all in the same boat, and need to stick together and look beyond facial features. Technology can demonstrate this to us very easily in an engaging and entertaining way, but it is up to us to remember to apply this concept in our daily lives.
